Re: Interior kick plates

rhino liner is a good idea, I was thinking about using 1/8 hardboard. But that would fall apart if it got wet.

Re: GREAT battery charger recommendation

I got the same one a few days ago, so far its working great. I like the fact you can override the safety to charge a completely dead battery for 5 minutes before going back to normal mode.

Re: Marmon Herrington info and snogo

The axles might hold up if you don’t beat on it, but with a top speed of 50ish with a modern overdrive tranny why bother. The transfer case would probably exploded the first time you hammered it:). ...
